Occum's Razor: Liberals are just cowardly and feel safer dissing a woman than a man.

Typo- Occam's Razor-

Also- Occam's Razor does not support your claim.

Occam did not say that the simplest explanation would suffice as the most likely.

He said that the explanation with the fewest assumptions would do so. You are assuming that both the male and female drivers are equally aware of dissention among fellow drivers. You are also assuming that the experience of both have been adequately shared between the two to justify a conclusion.

Occam wouldn't stand for this. The word of one poster with an axe to grind telling of a shared response between himself and his spouse based on personal conversations sounds like the type of evidence that Occam was trying to dissuade.

Liberals may well be cowards, but you can't reasonably bring Occam into it.
